    Jive Search Callbacks??

    gregorytdunn91

      Would Jive be able to implement a callback mechanism for the cloud platform that did something like this:

      * I register a callback function that your search function would call for every search request

      * That callback has a known signature, and the search request comes into it in a known format

      * The callback also returns a set of search results in a format Jive knows about

       

      So then a user issues a search. 

      The Jive search function passes the search request to my callback.

      My callback dispatches the search to all the additional search processes I want.

      It gets the hits and assembles them into a result that Jive understands.

      The callback returns those results.

      Jive displays those results along with the other search results it gets.
